34 When they had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret. 35 When the people who lived in that place recognized him, they sent word throughout that whole region, and they brought to him everyone who was sick. 36 Then they begged him that they might just touch the edge of his clothes. Everyone who touched him was cured. (Matthew 14:34-36, CEB)
They knew Jesus by sight and what He could do. And they had faith that touching Him would cure them.
Was it false faith? Meaning did they hear about the healings He had done and only wanted to see Him because they knew what He had done? They wanted to use Jesus for the healing of themselves or their loved ones? But either way, they believed what had happened and knew if He touched their loved one or they touched the fringe of His cloak they would be healed.
They had faith.
Do we have this faith?
